Demon Slayer has quite a few canon pairings that have become endearing to fans, and even more ships supported by fans that give off a warm and welcoming aura. Tomioka Giyuu, the Water Hashira of the Demon Slayer corps, and Kocho Shinobu, the Insect Hashira, have quickly become popular with fans following their interactions in Natagumo mountain, and their subsequent meetings since then. They share mutual respect and understanding as comrades, and Shinobu often teases Giyuu regarding his lack of friends. The fandom really started to get into this ship when Giyuu was seen visibly reacting to Shinobu's death in the manga, which is a lot for a stoic person like him. This is essentially a non-canon and tragic pairing, and they do not end up together in the reincarnated world post time-skip. The pairing of Zenitsu and Nezuko is arguably the most popular canon ship in Demon Slayer. Zenitsu is naturally an affectionate person and easily drawn to beautiful women.
Their love is a key driving point for both of their characters.
He falls in love with Nezuko at first sight, but what validated this ship to fans was Zenitsu's act of protecting Nezuko's box before knowing her. This ship remains one-sided throughout the manga, and even after Nezuko becomes a human, she hardly seems to return Zenitsu's affection in the romantic sense. However, they are revealed to have later gotten married and started a family. Obanai Iguro, the Serpent Hashira, and Kanroji Mitsuri, the Love Hashira, share the most impactful romance in the series. Their love is a key driving point for both of their characters. Mitsuri is the strongest woman Obanai knew, and he had hoped to confess his love to her in a world where they were normal people living normal lives. In a way, his dream came true after the time-skip. Mitsuri and Obanai died in each other's arms during the final fight against Muzan, affirming their love for each other. Post time-skip, their reincarnated versions are shown being married and running a restaurant together.
While the above ships are either canon or fan-favorites, there are quite a few ships that have garnered popularity but either don't make any sense, or are horribly cringey and borderline creepy. Douma, Upper Moon Rank Two, was responsible for the death of Kocho Kanae, the late Flower Hashira and Shinobu's elder sister. During the Infinity Castle Arc, Shinobu fought Douma with the help of Tsuyuri Kanao and Hashibira Inosuke. Shinobu had made and nurtured a poison made of Wisteria flowers inside her body for the sole purpose of killing Douma. Somehow, the fandom thought that this pair had the capacity of a romantic relationship. The animosity between the two is thought to be a part of their dynamic. Considering that Shinobu has given her life to defeat Douma, not only does this pairing make no sense, but also goes against the canon as a whole. Anime watchers first learned about Sanemi when he repeatedly stabbed through Nezuko's box in order to draw out her need to drink blood. The Wind Hashira believed that Nezuko was not capable of restraining herself and upholding the virtues of the Demon Slayer Corps since she was a demon. Much later, after the final battle, Sanemi started to warm up to Nezuko and thought of her as a younger sibling, especially since she reminded him of his younger brother, Genya. However, just like Zenitsu got irrationally jealous over their interaction, some of the fans viewed Sanemi and Nezuko in a romantic light after the new dynamic between the two came to light. This is uncomfortable considering that Nezuko truly represents Genya for Sanemi. Kibutsuji Muzan is the prime antagonist of Demon Slayer and he is the one who turned Nezuko into a demon. Nezuko's ancestry held the promise that a demon of this blood might be able to withstand the Sun, something Muzan had always been after. While Nezuko and Muzan never directly fight in the manga, many fans have wanted to see the young girl face off against one who slaughtered her family. Others, however, seem to have considered this as an opportunity to romantically ship them. Leaving aside all of the animosity and moral dilemma of pairing Nezuko off with the one who robbed her of her freedom, the age gap between them is jarring and uncomfortable. Of course, most Demon Slayer fans consider any pairing with Muzan to be the worst, and they aren't far off.
This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2. 9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.
He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations. Although he has no fingers in most media, he can hold things because of the suction cups in his hands. His favorite food is Dorayaki. He has also been shown to date with normal female cat. He is the elder brother of Dorami.

Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time.

Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.
39;s gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese).
The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.
He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer.
She sometimes fansies some handsome idols on TV. Besides Nobita, Shizuka is also close to her classmate and popular student Dekisugi. Though they consider each other only as friends. Gemini), named Buster in the Cinar dub and Bob in the Speedy dub, usually known by the nickname "Gian" (「ジャイアン」, "Jaian", English: Big G) is a strong and quick-tempered local bully. He also frequently steals other children's stuff (especially Nobita's and Suneo's) under the pretext of "borrowing" them, unless the toy is damaged. He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer. To prove this, Gian sometimes "invites" others to attend his concerts, under the threat of beatings. His singing is so horrible that, once, Nobita and Doraemon try to mute it in a silent world, his writings of the song lyrics in a board end up having the same effect as when they hear them.Though his voice is terrible in one of the episodes it was shown that a girl liked his singing. In some films, his singing is enhanced to become an effective weapon (as in 'Nobita's Great Adventure in the South Seas'). In some episodes when his voice is recorded and he hears it, he instantly denies it being his voice and threatens to beat up the person who his songs in a very bad way (which is an irony).
Gian is also confident in cooking, but just like his singing, his hand made food can be a nightmare for other people very easily. However, Gian does not hesitate to help his friends when they are in real trouble. Throughout the series, particularly the films, he is often the one who voices the most concern and refuses to look away when there is a problem, an opposite of Suneo's cowardice. While he is described by others as daunting and intimidating, he is very sensitive and prone to crying when something touching happens, and he actually values his friends highly, a feeling which his friends sometimes reciprocate. Gian also has a soft spot for his younger sister, Jaiko, and usually tries to prevent her from trouble, even if she can perfectly handle her situation. Gian basically is a bullying 'tsundere'. His catchphrase is "What's mine is mine. What's yours is also mine." (「俺の物は、俺の物。お前の物も俺の物。」, "Ore no mono wa, ore no mono. Omae no mono mo ore no mono."), also known as Gianism (ジャイアニズム, Jaianizumu) in Japan (the Japanese band Nightmare have borrowed the term for their albums Gianism Best Ofs and Gianizm). Pisces) is the fox-faced (inherited) from his mother) rich child who loves to flaunt his material wealth before everyone, especially Nobita. A lot of the stories start with Suneo showing off some new video game, toy or pet which evokes Nobita's envy.
